Original Pyrotenax® supplier

100% copper

conductor & sheath

Certified fire rated cable

Pyro MI Fire Survival Cable System

This provides the ideal solution to many difficult and demanding wiring installations making a permanent and dependable wiring cable system for all low and medium voltage applications. Safe in hazardous installations and radioactive environments. Exceeds all worldwide fire performance standards. The Pyro MI Cable System is the natural choice for domestic, commercial and industrial applications.

Fire survival

Pyro MI, tired, tested and approved worldwide.

Pyro MI Cable Systems were installed when fire broke out in the Channel Tunnel in November 1996. Resisting extreme temperatures that destroyed concrete and welded rails, the Pyro MI Wiring Cable allowed emergency lighting to operate for the safe evacuation of passengers; proving its superior fire survival capability.

Pyro MI benefits

Pyro MI construction

  • Pyro MI survives the fire test requirements for enhanced grade cables as defined in BS 5839: part 1.


  • Peace of mind from the third party (LPCB) approval for categories C, W and Z in BS 6387.


  • Also attains categories C, W and Z of BS 6387 with one single cable sample.

With a basic inorganic construction of a copper sheath and conductors, together with a mineral insulant, the cable provides a unique combination of dependability, versatility and permanence.

This construction, with the melting points of 1083°C and 2800°C for the copper and the insulant respectively, provides the unsurpassed Fire Survival properties which enable the cable to continue to carry current at temperatures in excess of 1000°C.

Quality Certification

LPCB Cert No. 063

LPCB Cert No. 063

Pyro MIMS certification


Pyrotenax Terminations are tested in accordance with BS EN 60702: Part 2. Pyrotenax Terminations are Certified for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. Glands - Baseefa08ATEX0327X and
IECEx BAS 08.0107X Increased Safety Seals - Baseefa02ATEX0194U

Pyrotenax cable drums, reels and termination packaging are
marked with the CE mark as required by the low voltage directive, except for Terminations primarily intended for installation in potentially explosive atmospheres which are not marked, because the directive does not apply.
